Five new Freemen

Many congratulations to Claire Chaplin, Caroline Long, Laurence Pearce, Ian Sabin, and Stephen Cooper, all of whom were admitted to the Company as Freemen on the 18th February 2015. All have close connexions with the Company: Claire is a daughter of the Master, so it was an especially happy evening for him; and Caroline is the daughter of Past Master Osborn-Jones. Laurence is a member of the Pocock & Barnes families; Howard is a Consultant Neurosurgeon at Bart’s, one of our near neighbours; and Stephen’s grandfather and great grandfather were both Masters of the Company.

Having such a wealth of talent joining the Company shows that it is in good heart and augurs well for our future.
